The website says of the document "Even after a century of its compilation" so it must be very old .. my sense is if you wanted to extract text from the document your probably safe. But if you want to re-distribute the document as a whole piece, I don't know, because there may new additions that makes the document as a whole copyright, similar to how a Penguin Classic book as a whole is copyright, even though the main text is not.
